Podcast host Joe Rogan has been caught out on air after growing outraged about a supposed Australian law that would ban people from growing their own food.

Rogan unleashed on air, claiming that the New South Wales government was trying to ban home-grown food in an effort to “smoke out” anti-vaxxers.

“You can’t go to a grocery store anymore, and you can’t grow your own food,” he said.

Needless to say, not only is the “law” a thoroughly-debunked online rumour, but unvaccinated Australians are able to shop at grocery stores.

“You could justify it if you’re a real piece of shit,” Rogan said on The Joe Rogan Experience.

He also called Australian authorities “f—ing creeps” – before being told by his producer that there was no actual evidence of said law online.

“Damn it, it better not be fake,” Rogan said.

Reuters reporter Nick Hardinges joined the derisive online response to Rogan’s stumble, tweeting a link to a fact-checking article debunking similar rumours in the state of Victoria.

Rogan has regularly railed against COVID-19 restrictions and vaccine pushes during the pandemic.

The US right-wing commentariat more broadly targeted Australia’s repeated lockdowns and strict COVID-19 regulations during the previous years of the pandemic, with pundit Candace Owens even suggesting – probably not entirely seriously – that Washington should deploy troops to free Australia.
